Schools and pav­il­ion dam­aged in van­dal at­tacks

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion fol­low­ing a spate of van­dal at­tacks in the north- east’s big­gest town.

Peter­head Academy, the Lord Catto Pav­il­ion and the Anna Ritchie School were all tar­geted. Hun­dreds of pounds worth of dam­age was done to the Anna Ritchie school when win­dows were smashed. The high school and pav­il­ion were both de­faced with graf­fiti. Sergeant Ge­orge Nixon, of the Buchan com­mu­nity polic­ing team, said: “These mind­less acts of­van­dal­ism to­wards im­por­tant com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties areun- ac­cept­able. We are fol­low­ing a num­ber of lines of in­quiry, how­ever I would urge mem­bers of the public to be vig­i­lant and to re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity to us. We will be in­creas­ing pa­trols around lo­cal schools and I would en­cour­age peo­ple to speak with our of­fi­cers to high­light any­thing they may have seen.”
